If you wish to ask a short question, please do so below.
Prior Podcast Below: (Feb 18th)
In some of your last interviews you spoke briefly about a Guaranteed Universal Basic Income. (London Real & Breaking the set - RT)
I also saw a great presentation by Frederico on this subject.
As an active member of TZM I was wondering what your thoughts are on promoting a basic income. It is becoming very prominent in the Netherlands right now and I feel it could be a transition towards an NLRBE and for reducing the increasing pressure of the current system.
Also what do you consider as potential roadblocks or negative aspects of a universal basic income?
Thank you very much for you time and effort. It is great having you back on the radio-show!
With kind regards,

Dear Peter, from Argentina, we are so glad that you came back to the radio
QUESTION: Dont you think that veganism maybe one of the most difficult things for people to overcome in the biggest transition of all which is VALUE shifting?
Quote by Leo Tolstoy: “Everyone thinks of changing the world, but no one thinks of changing himself.”
thank you so much!
take care, david
Background; Although the 'free' market in its current form perpetuates wealth inequality/differential advantage/corporate monopolies, and the too big to fail mentality a pure irony to the fundamentals of the free market, therefore its current structure a root problem (what TZM advocates). Economists that speak out against institutional corruption, that have spent their career within the matrix and read between the lines of what forces dictate the global/national economies (e.g. the true effects of central bank interest rates to benefit speculators, not savers and therefore deterioration of the lower/middle class) have a disposition towards financial corruption(in my opinion) of free market 'fundamentalism'; that the free market, left to its own devices, will select corruption out of the economic environment, as consumers are 'rational', and therefore aware if they are being exploited, and the problem isnt structural, but that the market isn't 'free' enough! (for example, Peter Schiff). I think this is stupid and all you have to do is look at history and how various insititutions have exploited the bottom of the food chain and see that exploitation is a testament to the fact the free market can manipulated (put simplistically) by those with the biggest slice of the pie.
Question; If various monetary reform efforts were implemented (such as stopping of government borrowing/remove the ability of derivatives to rape housing/food industries etc, as well as also perpetuating climate destabilization as banks have trillion dollar investments in fossil fuel derivatives),and stopping fractional reserve lending, etc), do you think the concept of a market is still completely futile (competition of ideas/investment of those ideas via crowdfunding, leading to the most efficient/sustainable and competitive execution of these ideas). You have said yourself that in a society utilising technology/ephemeralization, people will still want to work/be creative/collaborate. Would some form of a 'market' nurture this? Or is this form of a market with those reforms a ludicrous fantasy.
Your ability to word how the market, in its current form, exacerbates wealth inequality/structural violence, is paramount to true economic (within natural law) progress. Really helped me with understanding how I feel about the present and future. I hope my question makes sense and look forward to your future endeavours!!

Hi Peter (excuse me for my english)
Looking for "The Transition to a NL/RBE"
Has TZM evaluate some Countries and Cities where it will emerge by consensus?
I can think in Nordic Countries due to have a more equal society that have good access to education, health and pension
They maybe are more in line with the new value system and considering that they are making some experimental sustainable village.
Taking this account, Has TZM a working plan in different areas that show high efficient and abundance?
(Because I found hard to believe that they will jump to a new city system right away)
Hi Peter, I have 4 questions, choose as you wish.
a. How would lands and regions be named in RBE (would traditional "countries" keep their "borders" and names for practital/titular purposes, or would regions be renamed for their geography?)
b. Could you explain what would happen to a person in RBE that would, though being exposed to a sharing/access society, start hoarding resources? How would a symbolical limit be set on resource consumption (how would we decide how much is too much)?
c. How come Stefan Molyneux videos were removed from TZM channel?
d. Would it be practical to categorise all objections to rbe (as there are only around 100 and they repeat themselves in various forms?)
Peter, can the questions be off topic, like // who your favorite actors, artists and musicians are // ? I think the public would like to hear more about Peter Joseph, your artistic sensibilities-influences. There is so much bullshit floating out there. Really pleased with this years Oscars. Some powerful moments. Or do the questions just have to be about the TZM organization ?
Hi Peter, thank you so much for sharing with the world, caught Zeitgeist Moving Forward randomly but it was everything I had always thought(used to do searches online like "capitalism is the worst system" and never found much of anything) so finding ZMF on Netflix was life changing.
-Are there any artists aside from Enter Shakari that make music about another world being possible. Seems like music and movies/documentaries are the only way to reach the most people.
-I have watched quite a bit on peak oil after delving into Michael C. Rupperts info out there, what are your thoughts on peak oil. It seems like all the experts say nothing will be scalable and its too late, whether we have a monetary based system or not. What are your thoughts on this.
-Will there still be a Media Day later in the year, cant make Z-Day unfortunately. Really want to meet other like minded Zeitgeisters
-What are your thoughts on the group activist group Anonymous (Fema Camps, economic collapse). Wish I hadn't gone down this path as it's really scary stuff. Not sure what to think, but it does appear pretty clear that the Sandy Hook, Boston Marathon, and Aurora Batman shooting all never happened.
Hello Peter, while listening to your last podcast the word 'consensus' came up. Which made me think about the following:
How I understand, within TZM the word 'science' is used on many occasions, but there tends to be disagreement about where the science is good, and where it tends to be corrupted (basics of scientific method -> scientific consensus -> science used by the established institutions).
Resulting in the following questions to you:
How can one discern 'good' science from the 'influenced/corrupted' science? And how does a TZM activist cope with this when advocating scientific & technological possibilities for a better world?
The appendix in TZM Defined "B: The Scientific Method (pending)" seems a perfect place have more info about this...
(I tried to keep this short, but following context is important: when doing activism one can not always remain on the abstract 'train of thought' tangent - to create some basis towards people, showing the findings of science & tech possibilities are much more concrete. However: how can one differentiate these -application set- examples? Between the ones that have a valid reasoning and those that don't?)

What are the specifics of natural resource management? How does the current state of technology work? In Moving Forward, the word sensor was used I believe. Are there any books or sites you could point me to about this particular piece of tech? I'm curious of how automation would work in this scenario.
